Ireland 35 – 12 Wales

Before kick-off there was a late change to the Ireland team, Nichola Friday was ruled out through illness, she was replaced by Aoife McDermot who got her first cap, Elaine Anthony made the bench.  The scoring started in the 16th minute when Leah Lyons got over the line off the back of a maul, Briggs conerted.  With the clock in red Ireland got their second, Naoupu made a break giving it to Fitzhenry, the move was finished off by Claire Molloy, Briggs converted.  

Wales started the second half well with tries from Evans, and Harries, the first of which was converted by Snowsill.  Ireland fell asleep for the second and Peat was sinbinned for a high tackle.  Ireland got back on track with a try from Naoupu, Briggs converted.  Ireland got two more tries late on through Tyrrell and Molloy, both were converted by Molloy.  Claire Molloy was woman of the match, with Leah Lyons, Ciara Griffin, and Sene Naoupu also impressing.  

Scotland 8 – 43 England

England maintained their perfect start to the tournament with a win over Scotland.  Waterman and Bern touched down early on, both tries were converted by Mclean.  Scotland got on the board with a penalty from Law, then a try from Konkel.  England got two more tries in the first half, the first from Pearce, converted by McLean, the second scored by Kildunne.  

In the seond half Pearce touched down, then Tuima got over with McLean adding the conversion.  Finally Waterman got her second of the day.
